Miroku MK70 - Auto Safety Bar

Recommended Posts

Evening all, 

purchased a lovely mk70 but it has manual safety...

I see that there is a way to convert with  a bar and pin. 

Is it a specialist gun smith job, or could one diy?

Thanks in advance

It can be a DIY job, depends on your capability. I think Brownells stock the bits you will need.

Thanks... pretty handy with stuff - although YouTube usually have videos to follow... no such luck with this piece. 

I know where to source the bits.. just not sure where to fit them. 

 

Thanks again

I seem to remember seeing a YouTube video on how to convert the MK38 to allow barrel selection using the safety slider. That may well give you an idea of some of the work involved.

You can get the bits and fit them your self if you are capable of stripping half the action and adjusting the throws .

Just a thought......try looking on youtube for converting a Browning manual safe gun to an auto safe? I don't know but are they not virtually the same gun?

Or......you could just keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot?  🙂

Sorry, but it’s been screaming out to be said.

Why that comment?! I’ve been shooting with an auto safety gun for 20 years. 

I like the added safety...

Do you know what I’ve been screaming to say about this forum for a long time.... to many people with negative judgemental comments. 

 

If I want to convert my gun, who are you to tell me that I should keep my finger off the trigger till ready to shoot. 

I’m experienced enough thank you..

It wasn’t meant to be a negative judgemental comment, hence the smiley. 

If you want to convert your gun then I’m not telling you not to do it; you should do as you feel. 

Personally I’ve never used a safety on any shotgun or rifle; there’s absolutely no need for a safety on a shotgun. It’s just an observation. Each to their own.

Understood. 

For me I suppose it’s habbit, whether live quarry or clay.. safety off, mount, shoot...

One point not all Miroku's were machined to take a auto safe . I dont know if this model is or isn't . I never bothered with specific models as mechanical they are the same and as a gunsmith thats all that really mattered .

If it is not made for simple conversion then it can be done but it is really a job for someone with the experience to do it as it involves removal of metal , drilling in the correct place , making the activating rod  and taking wood from the inside of the stock head .

Thanks gunman, I did read that :good: if it’s not as simple as plug and play I won’t be doing it.

hello, i have preferred an auto safety on shotguns since i started shooting, i think it is just a matter of personal choice, i have just bought my new and last shotgun from 2 that i looked at both were ideal but only one had auto safety catch, as a side note i did ask how much would it be to have done on the other gun, £100 plus vat, hope you get sorted Andy
